DTCs P0657, P1590, U0101, P0201 – P0206 & POSSIBLE NO START

No: TSB-07-13-010
DATE: December, 2007
MODEL: See Below



Some affected vehicles may experience any or all of the following DTCs after the vehicle has been operated in very cold weather (approximately -5o F (-20oC) or colder) after a short drive (5 – 10 minute) followed by a 15 – 20 minute cold soak.

DTC Relay Description
P0657 ETV Throttle Actuator Motor Relay Circuit Malfunction
P1590 A/T TCM to ECM Communication Error in Torque Reduction Request (CVT)
U0101 A/T CVT ECU Timeout (CVT)
P0201 – P0206 Injector Injector Circuit, Cyl. 1 – 6


The customer may also complain of a no-start condition, however, dealers may find it difficult to recreate. The condition is caused by condensation freezing inside the relay, rendering it inoperative. Should you suspect very cold weather has caused either or both of theses conditions in an affected vehicle, follow the procedures below and replace four (4) relays with a modified type.


Affected Vehicles:

2007 – 2008 Outlander (2.4L 4 cyl & 3.0L V6) built prior to November 20, 2007.

2008 Lancer built prior to November 13, 2007.



  1. Identify which type of relay is fitted in the relay box. If the vehicle is fitted with the “Original Black Type,” continue with the following steps. If it is fitted with the “Modified Green Type,” diagnose the condition as per the service manual.
  2. Using the MUT[III, read DTCs and record Freeze Frame Data. Note if the data shows the intake air temperature at approximately -5oF (-20oC) or colder.
  3. Erase any DTCs and start the vehicle.
  4. Check for provisional DTCs.
  5. If no DTCs are reset, perform the following steps to replace the relays.



  1. Replace the following relays with the updated type from the Parts Information section of this bulletin.
  • A-18X A/T Control Relay
  • A-21X Throttle Valve Control Servo Relay
  • A-24X Injector Relay
  • A-27X Starter Relay
